The Government Technology & Services Coalition (GTSC), the premier non-profit organization for companies in homeland and national security, and the Non Commissioned Officers Association (NCOA), announced a “powerful partnership to find meaningful employment for transitioning veterans and allow them to continue their commitment to the security of the nation with employers working in homeland and national security.”
"We are thrilled to further our goal of matching our honored veterans with high quality, high paying positions that continue to serve the mission of securing our country. The contractors that participate with GTSC are working with all of the federal agencies charged with this mission and understand that veterans are the ideal employees who understand mission, often have security clearances and are committed to our nation," said Kristina Tanasichuk, CEO of GTSC.
GTSC represents nearly 140 companies in the homeland and national security sectors across the Departments of Homeland Security, Defense, Justice, State, Treasury and the Intelligence Community. GTSC already has a strategic partnership with Ability One contractor Linden Resources through their Vets Ready to Work program which supports veterans and wounded warriors with training, professional development and other employment supports to transition to meaningful, lasting employment opportunities.
"NCOA has been hosting Career Expos for our military for over 44 years. Our partnership with GTSC supports our mission of finding the right type of employment for our transitioning military members and assuring that the agencies charged with protecting our nation have the best, most committed individuals supporting them,” said NCOA Executive Director Jon Ostrowski. “The contractors working in GTSC work in this mission and would be ideal employers for veterans.”
“NCOA and GTSC will work together to develop expos to meet the needs of transitioning veterans, find and offer training for veterans and work with GTSC members to identify the skills needed and jobs available,” the announcement said. “GTSC will work with its members to identify gaps in their labor pools, strategize on future needs and work to match appropriate transitioning military personnel with high quality employment.”
